Eye Opening

Convincing Rocky to keep my condition a secret wasn't as difficult as I thought. Thanks to everyone that looked my way and whispered, wondering why I fainted, and making assumptions. Rocky felt bad enough and agreed to keep the secret. Everybody knew me as Aubrey's little sister, but other than that, I was unknown to the whole school, or just didn't matter to society and it was better that way.

"Look, Sam, I can't stand it. I think about it and I can't understand." she stopped just a few feet from my classroom, her eyes looked swollen just like my mom's. She had a look of desperation and confusion. Rocky glanced around to make sure no one was paying attention to us, but in reality, many were.

"Out of all these people, why you? Look around, so many jerks to choose from," she complained and it warmed my heart to know that I meant that much to my best friend. I couldn't help to smile at her. Rocky was like a sister to me. She filled out the role Aubrey was supposed to.

"God chose you why?" she argued fighting back tears. A lump immediately forming in my throat making me gasp for air.

"Sam, no! I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Calm down please calm down." her eyes widen, her face looked pale.

Rocky was afraid of anything that would make my heart accelerate. Taking a minute, trying to ignore her worried face, I shut my eyes and tried to breathe normally. After a few seconds, I calmed down.

"I'm fine." I let her know, so she could change her expression as well.

But I knew that wasn't going to happen as soon as I opened my eyes and turned to my classroom. Another stab squeezed my chest immediately. I couldn't control it. After his sudden attack, my heart could never handle Cameron's presence.

In the company of Miles and Angel as always. My eyes automatically looked for the last part of his group, who happened to be walking right behind us. Yael, pretending he wasn't worried about my little attack just now. His face was white with alarm, but kept his headphones on, to block everyone out. He was such an antisocial guy when he wasn't with his group.

"Relax..." I said to him. It took him a minute to gain back his composure.

Meeting Yael's eyes, quickly I turned back. I couldn't help to feel embarrassed now that Yael knew something I didn't have the courage to tell my best friends or so I thought.

I stopped as I noticed Aubrey, as a habit of hers; clinging to Cameron's shoulder. It wasn't hard to believe that, not even once Aubrey asked why was I in the hospital? or why was I sick?...
